The Chicago Sisterhood

Hmmmm. Very interesting that one of the first administration shuffles has the First Lady replacing her chief of staff (a former Iowa campaign worker) with Chicago friend Susan Sher, until recently a deputy White House counsel.

Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett's bosom buddy, Sher is one of the three hard-charging Chicago transplants--along with Jarrett and White House social secretary Desiree Rogers--renting units in the snazzy 3303 Water Street complex in Georgetown. (One colleague joked that the enclave has developed a bit of a sorority feel to it.) The three are thick as thieves and, along with Michelle O., present a formidable if unoffical block of influence.

Look out, guys.
